With involvement as their guide and a 
strong constitution as a foundation, the 
Minnechaug Student Council began the 
1969-1970 school year. Under the capa- 
ble leadership of Alex Gray, and the 
guidance of Mr. Steven Castonguay, 
each meeting opened new channels of 
student participation and responsibility. 
Supported by the popular programs for 
Snack Break and School Beautification, 
valuable work in the three realms of 
driving, dress, and discipline crowded 
the schedule of each representative. 
Many agree that improved communica- 
tion and co-operation between stu- 
dents, faculty, and administration has 
been established largely as a result of 
the Student Council's work. With pa- 
tience and dedication, progressive steps 
were made in an ever-widening scope of 
efforts for a better Minnechaug.

Requirements Of 
Chess And Debating 



With the establishment of "Prohibi- 
tion of United States unilateral military 
intervention in foreign countries" as the 
topic, battles of wits and skills marked 
the 1969-1970 season of the Minne- 
chaug Debating Team. Under the 
coaching of Mr. Paul LaFlamme, team 
members learned to think while trying 
to convince the judge of their viewpoint. 
The hard work and talent of the Debat- 
ing Team was proven in their successful 
representation of Minnechaug. 



Skill and knowledge of the funda- 
mentals of chess are vital require- 
ments of the members of the chess 
team. The boys play regularly after 
school in order to be ready for their 
matches. A lot of hard mental work 
results in victories for this group. 



The Chess Team concentrates on their 
games.

Library Aides — 
Important People 



There is always alot of 
work to be done in the 
library. Checking out books, 
filing, and returning books to 
the shelves are but a few 
things that must be done 
every day. The Library 
Service Club is a group of 
girls who help Mrs. Marot 
with these chores. They work 
during their free time and 
also after school.

If you accidently-on-purpose leave a tray on your table in 
the cafeteria, don't be surprised if a monitor taps you on 
the shoulder and asks you to take it away. The select se- 
niors work diligently to try to add order and discipline to our 
school. You can be sure the one time you wanted to sneak 
to your locker during a class, there'll be a monitor right 
there ready to check your pass. A lot of credit should be 
given to Miss Brewer, Mr. Badger, and this fine group of 
students.

Emeralds — Displays 



Much Talent 



The members of Emeralds 
read and evaluate poems, 
short stories and sketches 
which have been written by 
Minnechaug students. The 
best of these are chosen, 
and when combined, make 
up the Emeralds magazine. 
This year's publication 
displayed much of the talent 
of our school. 



Quill And Scroll 
Outstanding Literary 
Achievement 



In recognition of outstanding literary 
achievement, Minnechaug is fortunate 
to have a chapter of the Quill and 
Scroll, a national honor society for high 
school journalists. To qualify for mem- 
bership, a student must be in the top 
third of his class academically, and be 
an exceptional worker on at least one of 
our school's three publications. Among 
the activities of this group is the annual 
Valentine's Day cookie sale.

Breathing a collective sigh of relief when the yearbook 
comes out in June, is the diligent staff of the Falcon. 
Headed by co-editors-in-chief, Evie House and Sharon Bagge, 
and supervised by Mrs. Cesan, this group of students 
worked all year long to organize a hectic, busy, and chao- 
tic school year into a unified and interesting record of 
memories and events. Harrassment by deadlines and pho- 
tography schedules turns to apprehension when the finished 
product is ready for all to see. All at Minnechaug are grate- 
ful to the Falcon staff for their valuable service.

Life At Minnechaug 



The Minnechaug school newspaper, the Smoke Sig- 
nal, is one of the biggest contributors to our school's 
reputation of excellence in literary publications. Pub- 
lished once a month, the Smoke Signal contains articles 
of interest for everyone, with recent news and unique 
features spotlighting school and community. This year 
was one of many innovations for the Smoke Signal, in- 
cluding a change of format to a larger size, a Christmas 
supplement distributed to every student, and the estab 
lishment of a Falcon trademark. Headed by Editor-in- 
chief Alec Gray, and supervised by Mrs. Bauer, the Smoke 
Signal staff is to be commended for their quality report- 
ing of school life at Minnechaug.

Extensive Drill Makes A Good Season 




SEATED: B. McGuire, J. Smith, S. Bosworth, A. Castillo. STANDING: M. Sambor - 
alternate, Mr. Musselman — advisor. 





Each week on local T.V., academic talent is in the lime- 
light as schools compete for glory and scholarship prizes 
on the high school quiz program "As Schools Match Wits." 
With the help of Mr. Musselman, the team members 
headed by their captain, Steve Bosworth, meet twice a week 
to drill extensively and to hold practice matches. One of the 
highlights of the year was the annual "As Schools Match 
Wits" assembly, when the team triumphantly defeated a 
team of faculty members in a close match. In their efforts' 
for an ever better record, the team members develop their 
memories and read widely. Minnechaug is fortunate to have 
such an excellent representation on "As Schools Match 
Wits."

Mathletes Successful In '69-70 



After long and hard practices the Mathletes, Min- 
nechaug's math team, were successful in their com- 
petitions with other high schools in the area. Mr. 
Robinson works continuously with this group through 
the year to improve their reasoning ability. Those who 
find Algebra II impossible should try their problems!

National Involvement Proves Interesting 




The National Affairs Club, a 
relatively new organization here 
at Minnechaug, sponsors a pro- 
gram where prominent speak- 
ers lecture to keep the student 
body informed of current 
affairs of the nation. This year 
they featured a "School to 
School Program," where the 
members raise money in our 
school to build another school 
somewhere in the world.

The Model Congress Club investigates 
the inner workings of national govern- 
ment through a simulation of legislative 
procedures. Each year they attend, 
along with delegations from many other 
high schools, a Model Congress at A.I.C. 
There the members propose and debate 
bills in the same manner as the United 
States Congress. The members met 
during the year to learn and practice 
parliamentary procedure, thus gaining a 
keen insight into the technical mechan- 
isms of our country.

School Store — Good Business 




If you've ever been in need 
of a gymsuit, a notebook, or 
just a good paperback you 
know you can always go to 
the School Store. It's open 
every day before and after 
school as well as during 
lunch. The members of this 
group do a fine job in 
providing an important 
service.

Juniors Triumph And Girls Win Actor 

Awards 

In The One Act Play Contest 

This year was no exception to the tradition of the Junior play 
winning the honors at the One Act Play contest. It has been car- 
ried on for seven years in a row. This year, because of the short- 
age of male actors, the girls who played male roles, Susan Hee- 
ley and Camille McDonald, won the Best Actor and Best Run- 
ning-up Actor. 

The victorious Junior play was Sganarelle, an ageless comedy 
by Moliere. This delightful play depicted the trauma of blighted 
love and confused arguing between lovers, amid the hilarious 
antics of the characters. 

The bizarre play, Chamber Music, played by the Seniors, 
showed the thoughts and dreams of eight women in a mental 
institution. 




LEFT: The life of the so called Amelia Earhart is sacrificed in a plot against 
the men's ward of the hospital. BELOW: The women hold their meeting in a 
small room of the hospital. 




The Freshman play, Blood Wedding, was a story of 
the grievances of a group of women for a young man 
who met his end. 

Balcony Scene, the Sophomore play, was a satire 
which showed a young man who was brought back to 
earth to watch his own funeral. 

Both of these plays were very well done and we look 
forward to their talents in the coming years.

The year 1970 was no exception to the tradi-

nechaug's choral groups. Under the direction of 
Mr. Dwight Killam, the Choralyres, Jr. Chora- 
lyres, and Men's Glee Club completed a busy, 
but successful season. 

The Choralyres are a select group of sopho- 
more, junior and senior girls who have spent a 
full year learning all kinds of music from Bach 
to Simon and Garfunkel. Also playing an essen- 
tial role in Minnechaug's musical realm, are the 
Jr. Choralyres, a hard-working group of Fresh- 
man girls. 

Finally, giving Minnechaug's music a three- 
dimensional quality, is the Men's Glee Club. 
This choral group is constantly increasing its 
membership of talented vocalists. 

Minnechaug's talent is impressively exem- 
plified by a record number of our vocalists who 
were honored with exceptances by the Western 
Mass. District Chorus as well as the All-State 
Chorus.

Perform Social Duties 



Creating a friendly and cordial atmosphere at important functions 
throughout the year are the Minnechaug Student Hostesses. The 
members, a select group of junior and senior girls, are chosen by the 
advisor, Mrs. Shea, and senior hostesses on the basis of poise, 
personality, and participation in school activities. Among their many 
duties, are guiding new students and visitors around the school, as- 
sisting lost parents at Open House, and ushering at the 8th Grade 
Orientation and Graduation. Each year they sponsor a popular "Get 
Acquainted Dance" for the benefit of new students and faculty 
members. All at Minnechaug are grateful for their important contri- 
bution to the image of our school.

Falcon Break- Aways 

Score Another 
Undefeated Season 



Sports prayer, team spirit, first-half tension, 
second-half comebacks, fast breakaway scoring 
— all of these and more contributed to the 9-0-1 
record of the Girls' Field Hockey Team. Last 
year the girls lost only to East Longmeadow, but 
this year they came back to defeat the Spartans 
twice. Best of luck to the team's graduating 
seniors: Pam Shephard, Denise Gagnier, Sarah 
Carpenter, Debbie Rauscher, Betsy Hardwicke, 
Diane Piepho, Mo Hinkley, and Cathy Couture. 
Many thanks to Coach Gombar for her time and 
patience in leading the team through a success- 
ful season. 

Congratulations to the whole team on their 
undefeated season!

Girls' Swim Team 
Takes Western Mass. Title 

The Girls' Swim Team captured the Western Mass. 
Swim Meet with the same skill and effort that led them 
to their 13-0 record. The girls, lead by Captain Carol 
Butterworth and Coach Casico, practiced long and hard. 
All the girls gave an all out effort to produce this great 
record, and during the season many records were 
broken. At the Western Mass. Meet, Bonnie Bridgman, 
Cindy Staeb, and the 200 Freestyle Relay Team broke 
school records to place first in each of their events. 
With the well balanced team this year, we can expect 
another good season next year.

tics, swimming, and track teams all depend upon the efforts of 
dedicated individuals, and they all have had outstanding records 
during the history of the school. 

While the fans followed the triumphs and defeats of the other 
fall teams, the cross country team, another group of dedicated 
individuals, pitted itself against time and terrain, and won 
seven times while losing but twice Coach Bamford was proved a 
winner, by an amazing group of underclassmen led by Paul

Yes, football is more than the glamour and glory of Saturday afternoon; the hot 
dogs and pep rallies are frills. Football is a bruising game. It requires each play- 
er's dedication to aching muscles and weary limbs. Each football player's cour- 
age and stamina is challenged every time he steps onto the field. In the midst of 
mental strain and physical intimidation, who will stand tall? For Minnechaug's 
football team, the hopes and expectations of September materialized into but 
two victories. However, many talented underclassmen got a lot of varsity play- 
ing experience, and next fall there will be more victories. That is a promise. 



Frosh Finish 5-1 On The Season 



The caliber of play has improved considerably in the fresh- 
man football team during the past couple of years. The establ- 
ishment of little league football teams locally has brought young 
players literally into "contact" with the fundamentals of football 
playing, before they reach high school. Many of the members of 
the 1969 freshman football team were veterans of the little 
leagues, and they demonstrated their skills by producing a 5-1 
season record. South Hadley was the only team which managed 
to stop the fledgling Falcons, who averaged 23 points a game, 
while holding the opposition to just 11. Head Coach Paul Des- 
lauriers is looking forward to this coming September to scan the 
new faces for varsity material. In this squad, he is likely to find 
a lot.

Coach Whalen 



Booters Win 3 Out Of Last 4 



The 1969 varsity team finished with a show- 
ing of 6-7-1. This was not indicative of what the 
booters could do, however. Aroused, the Falcons 
won three out of their last four games and tied 
with highly touted Cathredral. All-League picks 
Gary Harris, Bruce Fuller and Biff Fisher led the 
attack against Minnechaug's foes. They are sen- 
iors, however, and their golden cleats will have 
to be replaced. The filling of these shoes will 
have to be done by talented underclassmen — 
Rick (Rocket) Ingraham, Ken Cieplik (next 
year's Co-captains), Frank Bongiorni, Pat Twoom- 
ey, Rich Bourbeau and Kevin Courtney. With 
such a wealth of talent, hard work, and a little

tainly improve on last year's record.

Coach Morgan was never really sure which players he would 
use until game time, because the ones that hustled were prom- 
oted to varsity. This added incentive made everybody play their 
best. If this same spirit is carried over to next year's squad the 
1970 outlook is bright.

This year's freshman soccer team showed hustle and determination. 
They lost Rich Bourbeau and had to rely on hard practice, skill and 
teamwork. Minnechaug certainly can look forward to some good soccer 
in years ahead when these dedicated players progress to higher levels.

There was a strange drop-off in half 
time soda sales during the past football 
season. Why? The 1969-1970 Girls' Drill 
Team put on some spectacular perfor- 
mances. In November, the girls doffed 
their sweaters and kilts and stepped 
into newly made uniforms to perform at 
the basketball games. They worked 
hard on routines to go along with their 
new image, and the result was some 
original precision maneuvers. A well 
done job and a lot of dedication de- 
serves a big round of applause. Thanks, 
girls!

Bouncing back from last place to first 
place, the girls' basketball team is now 
co-champion of the Valley Wheel League. 
The team, led by co-captains Debbie Pet- 
zold and Denise Gagnier, put in long and 
odd hours. Plagued by injuries throughout 
the entire season, the Falconettes still 
managed to capture the title. Scoring was 
led by Denise Gagnier with 156 points, 
and Anne Lescault with 118 points. The 
girls also played an entirely different ball 
game this year as the rules were changed 
to five players and fullcourt. This proved 
to be challenging for both the girls and 
Miss Dunn. The tremendous effort put 
forth by Miss Dunn and the whole team 
found them a spot in the Western Mass. 
Tourney. Thanks, Miss Dunn, for all your 
patience and hard work in trying to bring 
out the best in us!

"Who we gonna?" That was

gymnastics team throughout 
the season. Finally they came 
up with an answer — "every- 
body!" What led to their 
victories? Depth, amplitude, 
team spirit, Coaches Cascio and 
Gombar, Co-captains Leslie 
Blodgett and Jodie Moore, and 
maybe even the new white 
warm-up pants. Six members of 
the team qualified for the State 
Individual Meet; Chris Kopf, 
Jodie Moore, Jeanne Benoit, 
Sue Fisher, Bonnie Bridgman, 
and Linda Stiles. The team will 
miss its five seniors but can 
still look forward to a good sea-

The "Rookies" Beat The Champs 




For their first year in an organized league, the 
hockey team had an impressive 7-4-3 record. 
Lead by the powerful first line of Biff Fisher, 
Pete Powers and Pete Kielbasa, and the tena- 
cious defense of Joe Galavotti, Ken Cieplik and 
goalie Bill Brummage, the team established it- 
self as a solid contender in Fay Division play. As 
"rookies" in the league, the skaters pulled the 
upset of the season in out-hustling league 
champs, Easthampton, for a 2-1 victory. Coach 
Verani and his underclassmen are looking for- 
ward to a berth in the Western Mass. tourna- 
ment next year.

With the strong competition in the 
league this year, victories were not easy to 
come by. The Minnechaug Gymnasts 
suffered three defeats early in the season. 
They were, however, balanced off with six 
big wins which can be attributed to team 
effort. Seniors Frank Mazza, Tom Gallagh- 
er, Doug Coombs, Cliff Keeny and Roger 
Pelletier lead the way, but the hard work 
of a group of underclassmen made them 
score the points which meant finishing 
with a good season.

When they were good, they were very, very good. Two tough wins over 
palmer, a win against Bill Folkins and Longmeadow, and some inspired play 
against reigning Western Mass champ Commerce were the highlights of a 
hot and cold season. Twice against East Longmeadow, the ball just wouldn't 
go in, and those losses stifled the squad's chances for this year's crown. The 
team was young; having three sophomore starters and only three seniors, it 
showed some excellent play, and should be considered a top threat in the 
Valley Wheel next season.

On a Friday night in February, a group of nine lanky young men and one not 
so ianky, not so young walked into Friendly's on Boston Road. The group was 
the Minnechaug junior varsity basketball team, which was being treated by 
coach, Ray Mussleman, for clinching the Valley Wheel junior varsity champion- 
ship. The title was not an official one; no trophy was awarded. The only reward 
was the sense of personal accomplishment that each player had. All aspire to 
make varsity next year, where, hopefully, they will win the official title. Congratu- 
lations, JV. Good luck!

In the 1970 FALCON, we have tried to vary the format which our school year- 
book has usually followed. We hope we have been successful in capturing the 
many different sides of Minnechaug. To the staff, we extend our thanks and 
appreciation for the many hours of devoted work they contributed. Also, we 
would like to take this opportunity to extend a special thanks to the following 
people: Mr. Donald Lendry and Mr. Mark Stewart of the American Yearbook 
Company, Mr. Hausamann and Mr. Brooks Johnson of Hausamann Studio, the 
FALCON editors, and Mrs. Mary Cesan our yearbook advisor.

Meet The 
"Filthy Five" 




And Ellen's New Parents 



On May 22, 1970, Minnechaug opened its 
doors to an entirely different kind of play. Cen- 
tered around a group of teenagers, the plot 
showed how they feel when their parents "aban- 
don" them. David and Louise Michaels (Bill 
Spinn and Jonna Goulding) had just been mar- 
ried and adopted each other's children, Judy 
(Roxanne Kendall) felt that this meant that her 
father no longer cared for her, so along with the 
"Filthy Five" kidnapped her new sister. The play 
was staged half on a platform and half on the 
regular level. This enabled the audience to see 
two scenes at once. With the success of this 
play it looks like 'Chaug is on to bigger and bet- 
ter things!

This year the traditional Swing Band 
Show started off with a light show done 
to "Aquarius; Let the Sun Shine" from 
the Broadway musical "Hair". The use 
of a weird tape, black lights, and a 
strobe was indeed effective. The rest of 
Act 1 consisted of songs from musicals 
such as "Funny Girl", Oklahoma, Sweet 
Charity, and "Fiddler on the Roof". Also 
featured was a comic ballet done by 
Diane Ball. Act 2 consisted of scenes 
from "Hello, Dolly!" with Jody Baxen- 
dale as Dolly Levi and Ken Partridge as 
Horace Vandergelder.

The 1970 Gymnastic Teams 
In Exhibition 











This year's gymnastic show was highlighted by 
its new and different interpretations of gymnas- 
tics. Coordination and beauty were demonstrated 
when selected members of the teams presented 
Coed Floor Exercise and Floor Exercise of the Fu- 
ture. Also new this year was Artistic Gymnastics, 
showing a member of the team on each piece of 
apparatus, and a Hoop routine. Pyramids and Tiger 
Leaping were again a part of the show. And of 
course the competitive routines. The exciting night 
ended with a series of tableaux representing 
sports of the four seasons. Under the direction of 
coaches Cascio, Morgan, Craig, and Santucci, the 
show was one to be proud of.

Although the cindermen lost many valuable 
'69 seniors, and the team's co-captain Steve 
Roberts due to injury, the 70 Squad posted an 
excellent 8-3 record. A 16 consecutive dual 
meet streak was ended when East Longmeadow 
defeated the stubborn Falcons by a close mar- 
gin. The team was ably coached by Don Barn- 
ford and his assistants John Worthley and Phil 
Sousa. Rigorous training coupled with natural 
enthusiasm aided the squad in achieving a win- 
ning season.

This year's tennis team put experience and 
hard work to use. The experience came from 
the varsity team, comprised of seniors Bruce 
Drouin, Bruce Johnson, Tom Fogg, Wayne 
Carpenter and Geoff Spafford. Unfortunately, the 
J.V.'s had almost no experienced team members. 
The J.V.'s worked hard, however, to gain what- 
ever knowledge and skill they could. Next year's 
varsity tennis team will show the efforts of this 
year's tennis team, as the same people who 
comprised the J.V. team this year will com- 
prise next year's team.

High spirits and countless laps 
around the track amid cries of 
MOVE, were the order of the day 
as the first year girl's tennis team 
compiled a fine record, losing only 
to Amherst and Longmeadow. 
Coach Brewer's policy of "one 
lap" for every negative thought 
and the girls' own determination, 
promises that next year, rival 
Longmeadow will fall.

On May 15 and 16, the Girl's Synchronized Swimming Team took their 
audience on a "Scent-a-mental Journey", as they presented their annual 
show. The show consisted of routines, written by the girls, which were named 
after well-known colognes or perfumes. The routines consisted of varying 
numbers of girls and included "Brute", a solo by Bonnie Bridgman, Pub" 
a duet by Kathy Snyder and Denise Hanson, and "Wind Song", a trio 
choreographed by Leslie Blodgett and featuring Nancy Fleming, Joan Hebert 
and Debbie Nelson. The team paid tribute to its twelve seniors in the an 
nual "Pomp and Circumstance" which was somewhat varied from its tradi 
tional form. Instead of simply swimming down the pool, the senior members 
of the team performed an extremely difficult twelve-man dolphin chain. 
(A lifeguard was standing by in case one of the seniors didn't make it up!) 
The long weeks of hard practice were officially brought to a close with the 
presentation of roses to Coach Cascio, without whom the show would 
never have been pulled off. Many thanks to the lighting crew, Mike Lynch, 
Joe Twining, Ned Dean, and Jeanne Abrahamson. Congratulations to the 
entire team on an excellent performance.
